Alpine skiing & ski touring

Alpine ski touring has been gaining in popularity in recent years. Our region offers a number of hybrid sites, back country sectors in ski resorts, and even sites dedicated entirely to ski touring.

Mont Ste-Cecile

Located 30 km, or about a 30-minute drive, from our lodgings.

A new destination for ski touring and, soon, mountain biking! Finally, the playground of Mont Ste-Cécile is open to outdoor enthusiasts. This mountain is part of the Appalachian mountain range and features prominently in the region's diaporama. The mountain has an altitude of 895m and a vertical drop of 420m. This year, two corridors have been created, offering a playground with a 295m vertical drop.

Mont Sugarloaf

Located 90 km, or about 1 hour's drive, from our homes.

This ski mountain requires crossing the Canada-US border, but is well worth the detour. At 1290 meters, it's the highest mountain in Maine and the surrounding area.
The mountain has recently developed new backcountry sectors, Burnt Mountain and Brackett Bassin. They call them Sidecountry. These sites have the same qualities as a "backcountry" site, but with patrollers in the area. You can ski up the mountain, or use their new Burnt Mountain Cat Skiing offer.

Sugarloaf Mountain also offers ski trails with lifts.
